“Threat intelligence from the first half of 2021 demonstrates a significant increase in the volume and
sophistication of attacks targeting individuals, organizations, and increasingly critical infrastructure.
The expanding attack surface of hybrid workers and learners, in and out of the traditional network,
continues to be a target. Timely collaboration and partnership momentum across law enforcement as
well as public and private sectors is an opportunity to disrupt the cybercriminal ecosystem going into
the second half of 2021.”

Hackers used a compromised password to access the company network via a virtual private network in the May 2021 Colonial Pipeline attack. A widely known vulnerability that hadn’t yet been patched was the entry point for the 2017 Equifax attack. And a bitcoin scam on Twitter started with spear phishing attacks on Twitter employees.
Of course, there’s no such thing as a perfect security program, but such events show that cybersecurity teams can’t afford to overlook anything.
